All pages in the main body of the thesis including text, illustrations, bibliography and appendices must be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals, beginning with page 1 to the last page of the last appendix.
When you submit your thesis to your committee, any accompanying material must be clearly noted on the envelope that your thesis is submitted in. This material must be clearly labelled to ensure that it is not misplaced.
